CANNABIS

Cannabis, also called hemp, is a common name for a genus of plants. Subspecies include Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Ruderalis.


Cannabis is the most potential natural medicine type of cure for healing - one of the most pharmacologically active plants in the world with a mortality rate of 0% and measurable for almost all, even infants.


Cannabis is a complex plant and the effect of cannabis grows exponentially as more potential treatment areas are covered, including research that is working to reveal more medical benefits, as well as a number of applications being investigated about the effects of cannabis.


Cannabis plants contains over 100 active substances called Cannabinoids.

CANNABINOIDS

Cannabinoids are active chemicals that affect receptors in the brain when consumed. The two most important and most known are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israeli), was the person who uncovered the chemical structures of the two major components in the plant.


Cannabinoids consist in three different types: those the body itself makes, those that come from plants and those that are artificially synthesized.


Cannabinoids are involved in appetite, blood pressure, blood flow to the brain, digestion, nausea, immune system, inflammation, memory, mood, movement, pain, energy balance, reproduction and stress. The discovery of the endocannabionids led the researchers to the discovery of a novel physiological system, a key component of human health and self-healing ability: The Endocannabinoid System.

THC

THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabino) is the euphoric substance in cannabis.


THC stimulate the body that causes relaxation, altered senses, fatigue and hunger.


THC medication and driving should be considered with your doctor.

CBD

CBD (cannabidiol) is the most common active substance (cannabinoid) in cannabis.


CBD reduce anxiety and paranoia, antipsychotic, increases energy and is anti-inflammatory.


CBD is not an euphoric substance as opposed to THC.

THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)

The endocannabinoid system is one of the most important physiological systems, a system involved in the establishment and maintenance of human health. The endocannabinoid system refers to a group of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors that play an important role in the regulation of a wide variety of physiological processes.


The endocannabinoid system consists of current two discovered receptors in the body, CB1 and CB2, but in the next few years we are certain that more receptors will be isolated. There are natural chemicals circulating in the body that attach to these receptors and it is through this chemical attachment that the endocannabinoid system performs its functions. 


The endocannabinoid system and its receptors are widely distributed throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissue, glands and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs various tasks, always with the same goal: homoostasis, maintaining a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment. These are probably the kind of receptors we have most of - for the same reason, the system is involved in a wide range of diverse processes in the body.


The endocannabinoid system and its stimulation offers many opportunities to cure a wide range of disease states from survival to treatment, ranging from cancer to diabetes, asthma, arthritis, sclerosis and chronic pain. Research is expected to reveal further use in the near future.
